One of the best values in the e-drum market.

The professional DM10 Studio Kit 6-piece electronic drum set offers natural-feeling RealHead drum pads. The Alesis DM10 kit also includes low-noise DMPad Cymbals, the groundbreaking DM10 drum module, and a compact, flexible StealthRack.

DM10 Module 
You will immediately notice the DM10 module's outstanding sound quality. This drum-sound module contains true drum, cymbal, and percussion sounds, built from real samples of classic studio drums and prized cymbals. Drummers will find some of the most in-demand acoustic drum sounds from legendary drum brands; a huge arsenal of top-producers' go-to snare drums; real American, Canadian, Chinese, and Turkish cymbals; and a choice selection of classic drum machine and electronic percussion sounds that have fueled the biggest hit records. 

Discerning ears will notice that each of the Alesis DM10 module's sounds is actually a series of different samples; multiple dynamic-level samples and articulations are all built in, so as you play harder and softer, the drum or cymbal changes its timbre?not just its volume. This engineered realism is known as Dynamic Articulation, an Alesis exclusive. 

You can play the Alesis DM10 electronic drum kit with or without reverb for different room sounds and enjoy a wide variety of rimshots, rim clicks, and different stick-placement sounds on the cymbals. For example, a hi-hat's sound depends on a number of factors?how open or closed the pedal is, how hard it is struck, and other variables. The result is 40 different sounds, plus foot chick and heel splash. 

The DM10 Studio Kit's sound module not only has a breathtaking collection of sounds onboard, it is also the world's first drum-sound module that enables you to load new sound sets via USB connection from your computer. This means that your sounds will always stay fresh, current, and cutting edge. 

You can also use the Alesis DM10 as a trigger-to-MIDI interface for performing and tracking with software drum modules such as BFD, Toontrack, and Reason, among others. For practice, you can play along with the tracks in the DM10's internal sequencer, mix in an MP3 player, and play along. 

The Alesis DM10 module has 12 trigger inputs, perfect for creating custom configurations. The DM10's top-panel mixer gives you easy access to creating custom mixes. 

Alesis Realhead Drum Pads 
The DM10 Studio Kit features Alesis' acoustic-feeling RealHead pads in 10" and 8" sizes. The dual-zone pads feature real mylar drumheads and real triple-flanged counterhoops for the feel you demand. The snare and tom pads are dual-zone, enabling you to perform rimshots, rim clicks, or assign other sounds such as wind chimes, cymbals, gongs, and cowbells on the tom rims. 

RealHead snare and tom pads mount on standard 10.5mm L-rods with low-slip, knurled mounting surfaces. 

You can use virtually any single or double kick pedal with the RealHead Kick Pad (kick pedal sold separately), or split the DM10's kick input with a Y-cable and connect an optional second kick pad for the pedal feel you prefer. 

Alesis DMPad Cymbals 
The DM10 Studio Kit includes a set of 4 low-noise Alesis DMPad cymbals. The kit includes 1 DMPad hi-hat cymbal, 2 DMPad crash cymbals, and a 3-zone DMPad ride cymbal. DMPad cymbals provide a rubberized playing surface for a great balance between natural cymbal feel and low stick-on-pad sound. The ride and crash cymbals feature large choke triggers on the undersides for accurate cymbal control. The DMPad ride also features multi-zone triggering on the bell, face, and edge. The DMPad hi-hat cymbal and RealHat pedal give you continuously variable control from wide open to tightly closed. 

Alesis StealthRack 
Alesis equips the DM10 Studio Kit with an ergonomically curved, black aluminum StealthRack. The StealthRack is fully adjustable and large enough to easily accommodate adding on additional pads, yet takes up a fraction of the space of an acoustic kit so it's perfect for studios and rehearsal spaces. It employs standard 1-1/2" tubing for compatibility with virtually all drum manufacturers' rack hardware.

Alesis set out to make a kit that married the flexibility of electronic percussion triggers with with the expressivity and feel of acoustic drums. They started by re-vamping their classic DM5 drum module then overhauled the drum pads and cymbals and ended up with the DM10 Studio Kit: a kit that truly feels as good as it sounds. 

Drum Heads

The Alesis DM10 Studio Kit is outfitted with their unique mylar heads that respond like acoustic drums. They've got triple flanged steel drum hoops and are tension adjustable, allowing you to dial in the precise feel you want from each individual pad. 

Cymbals

The DMPad Cymbals are mounted like traditional cymbals for a free swinging, natural feel and have features like a 3-way triggering ride that responds differently when struck at the bell, plate and edge. In other words, because there are 3 different sound capabilities built into the one pad, the DM10's ride cymbal actually plays like a real cymbal.

Flexibility

Because Alesis knows you're going to need to be prepared for your Monday night metal band, Tuesday night jazz combo and Wednesday nu-wave group, they built the DM10 drum module with over 1,000 completely tweak-able sounds. And these aren't the lame, flimsy samples you may be used to...these are extremely detailed, nuanced sounds built from different samples played at different dynamic levels so the drums actually changetimbre instead of just volume. They call it, "Dynamic Articulation," we call it, "amazing."

Real Drum and Cymbal Sounds

The Alesis DM10's sound-set is comprised of real drum, cymbal and percussion sounds from genuine samples of classic studio drums and cymbals. Whether you're after the most in-demand acoustic drum sounds from legendary drum brands, or real American, Canadian, Chinese, and Turkish cymbals, or even classic drum machine and electronic percussion sounds, this module's got you covered. 

Tons of Control


Adjustability

To take things one step further, the Alesis DM10 gives you a plethora of tools to craft the perfect sound for every possible situation. Add various reverb types for different room sounds or choose between different stick-placements on cymbals and rimshots. Say, for example, you're feeling extremely picky about your hi-hat sound one night. After deciding how open or closed the pedal should be, how hard the plates will be struck and where on the hat your stick hits...you've got about 40 different sound options...plus foot chick and heel splash!

Computer Connectivity

Not only does the Alesis DM10 module have an impressive collection of on-board sounds, it's also the world's first drum-sound module that enables you to load new sound sets via USB connection from your computer. This prevents your kit from sounding old or stale as fresh new sounds can be downloaded to keep you current and cutting edge.

You can even use your DM10 as a trigger-to-MIDI interface allowing you to control a variety of drum module software such as BFD, Toontrack and Reason. This means that not only can you expand your library with sounds FROM your computer, you can also use your drums to send information TO your computer for recording, performance and practice. All of the sudden, you're great feeling, great sounding practice kit turned into a full-fledged recording studio super-set.
